Last report (Monday, April 13):


Solano County reported 5 NEW POSITIVE CASES today – total is now 140.  No new deaths in Solano County – still stands at 2.

As of today:

    • No additional positive cases of young persons under 19 years of age, total of 2.
    • All 5 of today’s new cases were persons 19-64 years of age, total of 111 cases, 79%, of the 140 total (no new deaths, total of 1).
    • No additional cases were persons 65 or older, total of 27 cases, 19% of the 140 total (including 1 death)

ACTIVE CASES:  Only 29 of the 140 are active cases. But this is 4 more than previously reported yesterday.

HOSPITALIZATIONS: In today’s report, the County shows an excellent new “Hospital Impact” graph (below). While 36 of the 140 cases resulted in hospitalizations, only 14 are currently hospitalized.  More good news: the County estimates that our supply of ICU beds and ventilators is GOOD.  (No information is given on our supply of PPE and staff.)

CITY DATA: Vallejo added 3 new cases, total of 53; Fairfield added no new cases, total of 34; and Vacaville added no new cases, total of 24.  Smaller cities are still not assigned numerical data: all show <10 (less than 10).  NOTE that the county’s 3 major cities account for only 3 of today’s 5 new cases, so 2 of today’s new cases must have come from our four smaller cities or unincorporated areasResidents and city officials have been pressuring County officials for city case counts for many weeks.  Today’s data is welcome, but incomplete.

The Number of residents tested panel reports that 1,922 residents have been tested as of today.  This is an increase of only 67 over yesterday’s total of 1,855.  As of today, approximately 4 tenths of 1% of Solano County’s 447,643 residents (2019) have been tested.

The blue bars in the chart, “Daily number of cases on the date that specimens were collected” shows why the County is interpreting a flattening of the curve.  Note that the daily date in that chart refers to the date a sample was drawn and so reflects the lag time in testing.
